The long-awaited sequel to 2007’s The World Ends with You is now available. Taking place several years later, the Reapers’ Game is once again in effect and it’s Kanade Rindo that’s caught in the middle. Check out the launch trailer to see the game in action.
Teaming up with his best friend Fret, otaku Usui Nagi and Minamimoto Sho, Rindo forms the Wicked Twisters to take on other gangs in the Shibuya UG to avoid erasure. Unlike its predecessor, exploration and combat is fully 3D with familiar locations like Hachiko and Tower Records recreated in excellent detail. Composer Takeharu Ishimoto also returns to deliver a bunch of new tracks and new mixes of old tracks.
NEO: The World Ends with You is out now for PS4 and Nintendo Switch. It will be coming to PC via the Epic Games Store later this Summer. Stay tuned for more details and impressions in the coming days.
